The Seahawks lost another game they should have won, but still had a few players stand out. No one came up bigger than safety Jamal Adams.
I think we’ve talked enough about the bad side of the Seahawks loss to the Giants. Well, not really, but for now, we have. So let’s take a look at the players who came through Sunday. In my view, no one came up bigger than the Hawks new strong safety, Jamal Adams.
Despite only posting seven points on offense, there was one player on that side of the ball that truly stood out. That player would be running back Chris Carson. The Hawks had 327 yards Sunday, and the bruising, leaping Carson accounted for 110 of them. He also scored that lone Seahawks touchdown with a sweet pylon dance to finish off a short pass from Russell Wilson.
Other than Carson, the Seahawks stars of this game were on defense. Quandre Diggs had a pick that he returned for 32 yards, and was one defender away from a pick-six. He also broke up two other passes, so he gets a good mark in my book. Rookie linebacker Jordyn Brooks had an excellent game as well. He had five solo tackles and six assists. Those 11 total tackles are two more than Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright combined.
But no one had a game like the President, Jamal Adams. He’s had several like this already, but some guys named Russ, D.K., or Tyler have had massive games and managed to overshadow him. Barely. By the way, Mr. Lockett’s full name is Tyler Deron; how is this man not referred to as TD?
Anyway, back to the Prez. Adams, as he has been in virtually every game he’s played, was all over the field. He matched Brooks with 11 combined tackles but threw in a sack, a quarterback hit, and a tackle for a loss. That is one strong safety, indeed. A strong safety, and the Seahawks MVP for this week.
